I would say we got a ton of outside work accomplished this weekend on top of having Ben’s birthday party *and* Easter brunch. My “gardens” are cleaned up and ready to be mulched (when I say “gardens” I mean I haven’t touched them since we moved in three years ago. I don’t garden.), I pruned the ugly Spirea bushes down to nothing (I really, really hate shrubs), put the blocks back up by the steps that Marlo knocked down when she was hole digging under the deck, and I FINALLY tackled the project that I’ve been meaning to do since we moved in! I took all the blocks from around the big oak tree in the backyard and piled them up on a pallet behind the garage. I hope the tree is happy, because that was a ton of work! I really hate bad landscaping. Oh yeah, Sam ripped the gutter off the front of the house, too. Owning a home is hard work! #feelingaccomplished#yardwork#garden#ihateshrubs#springhassprung#beautifulday#home#landscapedesign#homeimprovement#cantstopwontstop
How did I spend my day, Saturday?
By cleaning my wood furniture. It is pretty intimating; each intricate stroke of chiseling in carving the pattern collects dust. And to make sure the polish does not lose its shine, I don't let the dust to dominate. But even I can't bound myself to clean the elaboration daily.
So I have set my routine, tapping the surface with the clean piece of cloth daily (twice even), as my home is a sandwich between the construction at the backyard and construction in the front. Just imagine the swirling storm of dust.
And after a few days, while using the used toothbrush (you can even use the small paint brush) I take care of all these nooks and corners of detailing.
I did so much today & it was EVERYTHING I wanted to do! AND I actually did it! 👏🏻 👏🏻 Productive wasn’t a word I would of used too describe myself a couple years ago.
A LOT has changed since then! 🤩🌈 I felt so productive by getting up this morning & swimming the lap lanes @ the local recreation center. I’m NOT a swimmer so it was both rewarding/challenging which was so so good. 🏊🏻♀️ I NEED challenges to keep me out of trouble. 🤣😉 I also got a great 6 mile run with @eeemayo & @lexcelyn (she’s great coach) 👍🏻 I feel so accomplished after a good run. 👟💕 Then we ate like queens, that’s my favorite part. I’m a big sucker for a croissant. 🥐
Thank you for all the thoughtful messages this week! My daughter has recovered well and is getting back to normal. She started arguing with her brother, so I took that to be a good sign! LOL
After a few draining days, it has felt good to get back to the regular routine. I got a lot accomplished today, including a double workout to keep on schedule. Sure, I could have picked up where I left off or even skipped it, but I didn't want to...it felt great to get it done!
Ok!!! My Easter centerpiece is done!!! Thank you Pinterest! Or maybe not. LOL because it freaking took me 2 hours to make this😂 and $$$ shhhh🤫don’t tell Steve😁! But i LOVE it...🤭if I say so myself! 🥴 its a combination of fake and real flowers! Anyone that knows me...knows that I’m not creative like this so this is a major accomplishment! Happy Easter everyone! #freshflowers#easter#feelingaccomplished#pinterest#copycat#ididit#decoration
#feelingaccomplished and proud... Spring is here and I’ve started working on my summer beach bod. I ate salad for dinner 💪 It had croutons and tomatoes. Actually just one big crouton... with some cheese, and tomato sauce. Ok I ate pizza 🍴🍕🍕 #DontTellMom
Happy Spring everyone! The snow is finally melting... everything is grey and brown and the melt is causing flooding. But I’m excited because I’m about two days time I should finally find my frisbee 😁
